Gangwon FC vs Seongnam FC
South Korea – K League 1
Date: Saturday, 23 May 2020
Kick-Off at 08:30 UK/ 09:30 CET
Venue: Chuncheon Songam Stadium (Chuncheon).
The recent defeat against Sangju Sangmu away from home has rattled the feathers of the hosts. They are 5th in the table currently after 2 rounds with a win and loss in their account. But they have hope of a win at this upcoming fixture as they beat this opposition last time around.
Seongnam has played two inferior teams in the league so far- Gwangju and Incheon. Also, they are one of the two teams along with Incheon yet to concede in the season.
With the hosts failing to score against Sangmu we can expect them to struggle to get past the visiting defense.
The team which has finished 9th in the last edition of the Korean top tier has a chance to show their worth if they manage to keep their unbeaten run going.
Gangwon vs Seongnam: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Both sides have two wins each in their last 5 meetings across all venues.
- Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those 5 recent matches.
- In three of those games, both teams found the back of the net.
- In their last 5 head to head at this ground, both sides have won two games,
- Three of those 5 matches also had less than 2.5 goals.
- Seongnam is currently on a 3 match unbeaten run in the league.
Gangwon vs Seongnam: Prediction
There is just a point between these two sides and there is nothing much to separate them in head to head stats as well.
Seongnam won the last time they met this opposition back in September 2019. Seongnam is in a great spot with 3 matches unbeaten on the trot. So the hosts will face problems in defense throughout the ninety minutes.
The visitors have prevented goals in both of their league games. But they are yet to face a strong attacking unit and maybe the hosts will have a trick up their sleeves.
But like most of their previous head to head games, I think there will be very few goals for us to enjoy. So I am backing a double chance for a draw or the visitors winning and only one team scoring the goals.
